This past fall a couple of the Bella babes created masterpieces using Lulu's sets of fruit. They colored up the apples. Now I think apples say fall as much as falling leaves. And as it's my favorite season, I fell in love. I added the set of four stamps to my last Bella order. Today I decided to color the strainer full of cherries for this week's iSpy Sketch challenge. I had the perfect Graphic 45 design paper to compliment the stamp.
Here's this weeks sketch ISSC03. True to Cath form, I altered it a little. I decided to make it look more like a prized ribbon so I aligned the 4 pennants along the bottom of the main image panel instead of along the bottom half. I stamped the image onto Bella's Bestest paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with copics. I added lots of shading on the strainer with cool gray prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol as well as beige surround shading. A little machine stitching and some green brads finish this off.
Hope you're having a great week. Don't forget that this week we have with another Sketch for the Bellariffic Friday challenge. Take a look here and give it a try. Then be sure to send a photo of your card to Emily@stampingbella.com by Thursday night. Can't wait to see what you create!
Thanks for stopping by.
